The Indianapolis Colts are about to be on their fifth quarterback in five years. After trading Carson Wentz to the Washington Commanders, they will try once again to find a more permanent replacement for Andrew Luck.
With plenty of solid quarterbacks available for trade, the Colts are looking at a free agent. According to ESPN's Dan Graziano, the Colts have their sights set on Marcus Mariota as an option to start for them this season.
The name I'm hearing the most as the Indianapolis Colts' answer at quarterback is free-agent Marcus Mariota, who has been Derek Carr's backup with the Raiders over the past couple of seasons. There are also people who think Minnesota's Cousins could end up in Indianapolis, though it's unclear if Cousins is going anywhere.
Mariota, prior to spending two years as a backup with the Las Vegas Raiders, started for the Tennessee Titans. His best season came in 2016, where he threw for 3,426 yards and 26 touchdowns (and just seven interceptions) in 15 games.
Cousins would be a much stronger option, though the Minnesota Vikings don't seem likely to move him. After hiring Los Angeles Rams offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell to be their head coach, it seems like the franchise is looking to build around him.
Gardner Minshew could also be an option for the Colts. Indianapolis has a very strong team in place for a good quarterback. If they struggle to find one, they may have to head into a full-on rebuild.
